In this clip from a Summit Worldview Conference session, cold-case detective, J. Warner Wallace, examines the objection that there are too many variants between the ancient New Testament manuscripts to trust any document we have today. Is there a process we could use to determine their reliability? In this thought experiment, J. Warner describes a “worst case scenario” in an effort to demonstrate the reliability of the New Testament.

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
